it depends on where you are on the political spectrum, and what you happen to be railing against at the time. for instance some believe that AIG is an evil corporation, but these same people also said that it was too big to fail.

Is Youtube evil when they impose censorship?

Tech, Media, Entertainment, Social Media, Much of Wall Street, and most other large corporations are led, and run by Progressive Democrats. Some of these should be considered monopolies. Yes, many could also be considered evil, and pushing Totalitarian OPPRESSION. However, as others have said the corp is just a piece of paper. It is the PEOPLE that run them that are evil.

No doubt about that. They personify the word "Sociopath."

Pay day loan companies definitely, the business model specifically targets the poor


(taking advantage of their customers situation and shaking them down).

How do? Did they put a gun on the poor’s head and force them to get a loan?

Is the entire company evil or just the leaders?

Once a corporation starts supporting left-wing causes and institutions, it becomes decidedly evil.
